Don't think I've ever seen a white perch. Are they as good eating as the yellow perch? Where are they? Nice fish.

Yes they're good eats. While called white perch, they're actually not a perch at all. They're in the same family as white bass, striped bass etc. This one was caught in New York.

Went ice fishing for char and rainbow.

Nice rainbows and char. These ones are 17 to 21 inches.

We picked up a used Old Town Saranac 146 today and took it out for a spin. Didn't catch anything (I had two that I thought were good, but they didn't make it in the boat!) but had a good time and am ready to get back out there! I'm in the back...

Very cool, looks like everyone had a blast. Nice looking family. This is a fishing thread not a catching thread so your post is in exactly the right place.

Thanks! I have no doubt that I will be posting to this thread soon with a saltwater catch, as we all really liked where we took the canoe out in this pic! I have been fishing since I was a toddler, but 98% of it has been freshwater, so I am still figuring out this saltwater thing!

Is that a big Brookie, how big? It's pretty hard to tell the lakers from brookies when they get big and the tail is altered.

Delayed reply, lol. There's no deep fork in the tail fin, so it can't be a Laker. ;)

Yeah, I'm aware of that. The reason I asked was because that fishes tail had been somewhat shredded, making it harder to tell. Thanks

Some of the best eating around these parts

Very nice, I'm more than a tad jealous! :thumbsup:

So, what's up with that Caribbean? Dye the G10? :cool:

Ah, I see, I didn't realize that. Looked like the bottom of the fin had been clipped (some of the hatcheries here do that), and that's what you were referring to.

Yes indeed. Good ol Rit gets the job done.
The Caribbean is the folder I always reach for whenever I'm headed out to the water. That LC200N is a great steel.

Turned out great! :thumbsup: I'll be doing a couple of my Jade knives (PM2 and Shaman) soon.

Guess I should throw a couple fishing pics from earlier this year in this here thread so I stay on topic... ;)

A few others while I'm at it. We had some great ice fishing here this season! Some epic days for Kokanee, Lake Trout, and panfish/Walleye. Last day on the ice for me was Friday, and now it's open water season down here on the front range of CO. A few more weeks of safe ice in the mountains, but I don't expect to get back up there.

Great day of Kokanee for our group (couple trout too)
